According to the artist, the mural intends to highlight the fact that changes can be frightening, but at the same time liberating. Thinking about change, big or small, make us reflect about the way things are, and therefore a positive and healthy approach to life.
Dourone’s artworks are figurative and surrealistic, they combine bright colours with the illustrative line-work so characteristic of his paintings, always dominated by the female figure. Allegorical portraits that speak about womanhood and concepts like responsibility, solidarity, complementarity and creation, but also about an almost esoteric whole and infinity. The work reflects the artist’s so-called “sentipensante”* style revealing humanist ideals that question our place on earth and our responsibility in relation to this world.
